40 years from Graduation Day

Celebrating today at Università Bocconi my graduation 40th anniversary.
Graduating was my Ithaka: a dream, an eye opener, an end and its beginning.
Following Kostantinos words, I developped my journey:
"Keep Ithaka always in your mind.
Arriving there is what you’re destined for.
But don’t hurry the journey at all.
Better if it lasts for year
so you’re old by the time you reach the island,
wealthy with all you’ve gained on the way,
not expecting Ithaka to make you rich.

Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey.
Without her you wouldn't have set out.
She has nothing left to give you now.

And if you find her poor, Ithaka won’t have fooled you.
Wise as you will have become, so full of experience,
you’ll have understood by then what these Ithakas mean."
